NUnit Selenium C# Framework Integration

  1. Refer to NUnit Selenium C# Framework for Jenkins integration
  2. Create a new Freestyle project for the framework

3. Select This project is parameterized option to add run-time parameters, I am passing browser options as parameters.

4. Give project path after selecting the Use custom workspace option. If the project is present on git, we can use the Source Code Management option and add the git project path.

5. Use Execute Windows batch Command to add the project build and execution commands.

Dotnet build

To pass parameters at run time we use the .runsettings file. In our project, we are using browser parameters with the default value Chrome. To use the .runsettings file we can use the following test command

Dotnet test -s CalculatorFramework/test.runsettings

If we want to pass browser value at run time from Jenkins then we can use the following test command. Here browser value be replaced by the Jenkins choice parameter value.

Dotnet test — TestRunParameters.Parameter(name=\”Browser\”, value=\”%Browsers%\”)

6. Save the project and Select the Build with Parameters option to build the project and run the automation scripts with the selected browser option.

7. After we click on the build button, we can navigate to the console output of the running job to view the results.
